Everfuel: hydrogen refueling stations to serve the main corridors
The Swedish stations will be established in cooperation with the local unit of OKQ8 as part of Evefuel’s ongoing collaboration with the leading Scandinavian operator of service stations. Some of the main traffic corridors in Sweden run across Värmland, connecting the cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Karlstad. The main road between Oslo in Norway and Stockholm also crosses the region. It is home to a significant forest industry and other business activities relying on heavy trucking for which hydrogen is very well suited with OEM’s ready to receive orders for the first vehicles.
The two Värmland sites will be part of Everfuel’s H2 station roll-out plan targeting up to 15 strategically positioned refuelling points by end of 2023. The Swedish network will comprise of sites developed by Everfuel in cooperation with partners such as OKQ8, and under the partially EU funded Nordic Hydrogen Corridor initiative developed in collaboration with the project partners Statkraft, Toyota, Hyundai and Hydrogen Sweden. In Germany, the agreement includes a refuelling station and associated services for a minimum contract period of 10 years. The station is planned to be operational in 2023.
